Presidential Office Building, Taipei

(3.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos. Use our Taipei family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Presidential Office Building and other attractions in Taipei.

  • 想要近近的拍總統府嗎?想要看總統府裡面是什麼樣子嗎!還沒有來總統府參觀的人千萬別錯過。每個月都會有一天開放參觀,可以上網查詢開放的日子,其他天也有開放只是時間上有限制。開放日除了裡面的建築風格吸引人的目光外,展覽也很有看頭,花園裡的魚池鯉魚很大隻,看到人會主動游過來非常的可愛。來參觀別忘了要帶身份證哦,還有檢查證件的時候要脫帽。  more »
  • Stopped by after visiting the 228 Peace Park. It was a short distance from the Park. It was a splendid building. In use now, Guard soldiers were standing at the entrance. Of course, on the inside of the fence guarding people. Non-participants were off limits.

  • The current Taiwan President Chen's official residence building is being used as Japan's colonial occupation of Taiwan was originally a colonial official residence of the Governor General and is building, built to be used as a residence. At the time, was introduced to the Japanese obsession with and actively use the form of the building, it looks quite exotic and magnificent. If you look at the building's placement as the aerial photos Japan kanji symbol is placed, in the form of a day (Sun) Japan reflects the colonial history of the show.

  • This is president's office. It is an old building built in 1919 by Japanese. Sometime it will be open to public during weekend or holidays. Check its schedule on official website for more details. There are photo shoot platforms in front of the building. Go there and you will get a better photo. The building looks different when day and night, and I like it personally when lights on
